Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS)
Principal Investigator: Kadidia Thiero
Funder: National Science Foundation
We are proud to be the host program for the Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS) office. SOARS is an undergraduate-to-graduate bridge program designed to broaden participation in the atmospheric and related sciences through building a strong and supportive learning community, strong scientific and career mentoring, and providing hands-on experiences in research. SOARS is designed to promote and support research, mentoring, and community. SOARS Protégés can participate for up to four (4) summers conducting research in atmospheric and earth-system sciences. Over 90% of SOARS Protégés advance to graduate school, and many enter the workforce with a MS and/or Ph.D. degree.
